Uriage

July 20, 2015

With 20 years of skin expertise, Uriage Dermatological Laboratories develop products in collaboration with dermatologists and pharmacists from all over the world. The products are subject to clinical testing which support each of their claims.

All skincare products are formulated according to a strict charter which adheres to pharmaceutical standards. The formulas are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, paraben-free, and with a minimum concentration of preservatives to better respect your sensitive skin.

Uriage has combined Uriage Thermal Water with numerous highly innovative active ingredients from biotechnological research. These patented active ingredients are included in many ranges such as the ones I'm introducing today!
That's why I always feel like their products are not just normal beauty products, but products with some pharmaceutical benefits as well.

For existing users, you would notice that the Uriage Bariesun SPF50+ Claire Cream and the big bottle of Uriage Thermal Water (300ml) is in brand new packaging, so don't worry if you're dropping by to get new supplies and they look unfamiliar coz they're the right ones :

Uriage provides a full range of hypoallergenic products formulated with a unique active ingredient, Uriage Thermal Water and thus they respond to the needs of all skin types, regardless of age, including the most sensitive.

I was sent both types of sunscreen creams to try, both tinted and non-tinted.

I tried both but I definitely prefer the tinted one as the non-tinted one, pictured above on the right, has a pretty runny texture. You need to take your time to spread it properly and if you put too much it gets very, very sticky. Also I noticed my makeup couldn't sit as well on it, so I guess this would be best for makeup-free days when I need lots of protection, or any other body part that doesn't need a tinted colour!

The tinted one on the other hand, to me, has texture that is much easier to handle and it definitely does even out the skin tone! Just requires some loose powder on top of it to make it less sticky. The fact it has SPF 50+ is very much believable as well because I can actually feel like my skin is protected - It literally feels like another layer of skin on my face after I apply it.

Personally, I would definitely use this if I were heading to the beach or somewhere very sunny, perhaps not so much on normal days because it feels a little too thick for our humid Singapore and my skin gets clogged up easily with any texture that's too heavy, which is why I don't foundation. This could be a really good substitute for foundation on days at the beach, when I need my skin colour evened out and still well-protected.
(You can see from the picture below that the consistency is very thick, and it smells like old school sunblock which kinda tells my senses/me that I'm well protected!)

Next up, Uriage's thermal water spray. 

I've recently tried out another brand's water spray (review a few months back) and I sincerely feel that both brands are very good so it isn't easy for me to be writing this post. 

I'm not an expert and I find it hard to describe the difference but there definitely is :
The content of the sprays are very different, so what stands out to me about Uriage's is that theirs, is isotonic, and has similar mineral concentration (11 g/l) with our natural skin which means skin cells will not be affected by its application.  Hence, there is no bursting or shrinking of cells which hinder our skin absorption of skincare products.

Here is a little graph I drew to explain how our skin cells reacts with different types of water :


Like all other sprays, it is also convenient.. No patting or wiping is required. I personally love having them in the car especially, it's such a convenient way to cool down on hot days. Just a few sprays and you're feeling so much cooler, much better than blasting an air conditioner which will instead dry out your skin.
